Sample text

32 YUMNA AL-‘ID Ahl al-hawa is a novel about the intertwined relationship of masculinity and femininity, the murder of the Other and the need for it, and a selfabsorption that recognizes only the similar and simultaneously rejects and loves the Other. Using the intricate relationship of femininity and masculinity, Hoda Barakat takes the novel to a high aesthetic plane, blazing an important trail for the Lebanese novel, one that firmly grounds women’s novels in the larger literary context while creating a distinctive Arabic novelistic discourse.

The novel’s language reaches an aesthetic level that deepens the meaning of loneliness, which becomes not merely the loneliness of a particular woman, but the loneliness of a human being in a country that is just emerging from the heat of war. It seems that the fighting has created a type of interior estrangement in which questions about the future are even more difficult to face than war itself. Several general conclusions can be drawn from the foregoing survey. Firstly, in the pioneering period, writing women made valuable contributions LEBANON 35 to the evolving Arabic novel.

Yet LEBANON 33 this recognition of death would not have been possible if Hamad’s consciousness had not evolved and freed itself from his crisis of identity, which sprang from his childish connection to his mother’s womb. As a representative of the young generation of novelists whose consciousness was formed in the midst of civil war, it is difficult for Najwa Barakat not to bring death into her novels, even if they do not directly address the war.
